Switching apps and media from a smartphone's limited internal storage to an attached SD card is an effective way of maintaining the device's performance.
With the growing popularity of Android phones, which make use of additional memory provided by a micro SD card, Cnet.co.uk has issued a list of 50 tips for people with gadgets that run the operating software.
The site advises users that most of their downloadable apps can be moved to the SD card. People can see how much internal storage is available by opening the settings menu and touching the Applications option followed by the Manage Applications tab.
